This time, why do I not have to define the fetch method inside the Dog or Cat class?

I'm asking this because we included Enumerable in the exercise before and to be able to use the .each method, we had to define it.

Hey Frank,

It's because it is defined in the Fetcher Module. So in the Dog/Cat class, we have access to everything in that module, including any defined methods.

Hope that helps.

Keep Coding! :)
